Are wedding bells in Mila Kunis' future?
Well, now that boyfriend Ashton Kutcher is officially divorced from Demi Moore, tongues are wagging that Kutcher and his new flame may be ready to head to the altar.
"Ashton and Mila have talked about getting engaged and married for quite a while," someone identified as a source close to Kutcher told People. "He wants to get engaged during the holidays."
The Social Climber always thought the "That '70s Show" co-stars made a pretty convincing couple when their characters, Kelso and Jackie, dated on the show. They're pretty darn cute together in real life, too.

There will never be another No. 3.
The Philadelphia 76ers announced Wednesday that they would retire Allen Iverson's number in a halftime ceremony on March 1, 2014, when the Sixers take on the Washington Wizards.
"Allen left everything out on the court, and no one could ever question his heart -- he was relentless, fearless and pound-for-pound, was one of the greatest to ever play the game," Philadelphia 76ers Chief Executive Officer Scott O'Neil said in a statement.
Iverson, who officially announced his retirement Oct. 30, will be in the company of other Sixers greats, including Julius Erving, Wilt Chamberlain and Charles Barkley.

99 bottles of beer on the wall, take one down, pass it around ... and smash it?
That's what happened in Nigeria when Shariah enforcers -- or Hisbah -- destroyed thousands of bottles of beer outside northern Nigeria's largest city of Kano.

Colorado State Sen. Evie Hudak resigned, effective immediately on Wednesday.
Hudak was facing a possible recall election because of her support for new gun control measures in the state.
By stepping aside, Hudak said she hoped to save taxpayers the $200,000 cost of a special election, ABC's Denver affiliate KMGH reported.
Two of Hudak's Democratic colleagues were also recalled in a September election.
